A fresh take on detective noir

Kevin Wright has found a way to one up his medieval fantasy detective noir "Lords of Asylum." Post apocalyptic steampunk Hindu detective noir.

Wright has crafted a brilliant new setting and populated it with fresh takes on standard characters. The world of Mortise Locke is unique and well developed, with just enough familiar notes that it's easy to get to grips with, and marvel at the new twists. Wise cracking sleuth Avinash Shakteel squares off with a rogues gallery of fascinating villains, informants and uneasy allies as he struggles to unravel the case of a young man's disappearance.

Black market organ trade, corrupt policemen, underground knife fighters, hired assassins and worse await our hero. Can he rise --or perhaps stoop-- to the challenge?
